PHOENIX - Phoenix police say a 12-year-old girl is in critical condition after being struck by two cars while riding her bike Wednesday afternoon.
Phoenix police spokesman Trent Crump said the accident happened near 19th Avenue on Indian School Road around 4:15 p.m.
Crump said a father and daughter were crossing the intersection in the crosswalk when a car traveling westbound on Indian School hit the little girl. She was then hit by another car traveling through the intersection.
It is unclear if they were riding or walking their bikes when the girl was hit.
Police said both drivers stopped and are cooperating with police. Authorities believe glare from the sun may have played a factor in the accident.
The 12-year-old was taken to Phoenix Children's Hospital in critical condition.
